I always think Eclipse when I think where the high aspect thing was going. It was way ahead of it's time.
Ahem. a) can we all stick to the correct definition of aspect ratio for this application please. Just because two kites have the same height and wingspan does not mean they have the same AR.
It may have a wide nose angle but the Eclipse isn't my
idea of high AR. It's carrying plenty of sail, especially outboard towards the tips. I doubt I'm telling you
anything new here.
